White House asks Pak to attend the Bonn conference
Washington: The White House has asked
Pakistan to attend the crucial international meet on
Afghanistan in Bonn early next month.
Pakistan had yesterday announced not to participate in
the conference in Bonn in Germany in protest against the
killing of its 24 soldiers by NATO forces in a cross-border
fire on the Af-Pak border over the weekend.
"We certainly urge Pakistan to participate in this
conference. It`s very important for the future of
Afghanistan," White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, told
"Pakistan obviously will play an important role in the
future of Afghanistan, and we urge them to participate in the
conference," Carney said in response to a question.
